No worries BD, would like to see the wordsmith chime in as well. Maybe there's something I'm missing that others can point out

You guys launched me on a random Strummer chase, and happily found this quote:

“When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don't learn nothing, cause hey, it's not your fault, it's his fault, over there.”

Resolved . 'Punk' music is an American art form . Long ago exported . It did not begin w/ the SP's . Hopefully we can agree .
I respect the Clash .
I like Joe w/ some of my Irish 'friends'.

And two from the aforementioned Pogues , from 'Rum , Sodomy and the Lash'. They are(were) my fav Irish roots -punk band . Shane MacGowan is someone to wiki . Here are some tamer intros ,

and another from the same album ,

I could not do live vids . There is no way most Americans unfamiliar with the Pogues would understand them ( edit - it's the accents ). Real good Fun to watch once you are in the groove .
Aww man. Now I am, thinking of Frank Black .

Definetely didn't start with SP's. Iggy, New York Dolls, Ramones, lots of underground New Yorkers. Check out End of the Century doc. about Ramones, probably the best one. Was anyone more punk/metal than Jimi Hendrix though?

i wouldn't say i'm rabid about Hendrix, altho if you viewed my music collection, you might think i was; i love listening to Hendrix, and he's the only performer from that time period that i never get tired of actually watching, and i am not a video sort of person, no patience, no interest, etc. ... i'm saying all this because i'm going to have to think about your statement, i do not disagree, just not sure i'm ready to sign your petition, yet

regarding the Clash, like micah, i respect them and have listened to pretty much every official release, even owned a couple back in the vinyl days, but when i want to reach for something 'Punk', the Clash ain't it

check out Fear's first LP, LA Punk at its best

the Pogues were a favorite of mine back in the mid '80s, Rum Sodomy & the Lash i still listen to with regularity, a desert island disk if ever there was one

M,
End of the Century:The Story of the Ramones I also highly recommend .
A great film , not just a story of a band.
